Pied Piper double feature. Apparently, Jacques Demy isn't a director's name worthy of any poster space.

That one on the left, I saw when I was little--scared me a lot!

Which makes sense in hindsight, because it's not recognizable as a Demy film at all. As for scary, the Barta easily trumps that, despite being "just" an animated film. It's also a pretty marvelous work, with a style similar to Svankmajer or the Quay Brothers.

Was that always the poster for the movie? I never noticed they were walking on a guitar before.

No it wasn't. Glen Hansard did rant about all the changes here...

GH: Oh, man. They CINECAST!in' killed it. You're right. They have us holding hands, which we never do in the film! Those legs aren't mine. Those legs are like three times longer than my legs. It's a completely new body. They literally just used my face. I'm wearing a hat in the original picture, so they Photoshopped my head. If you look at my head, my head looks totally weird, because whoever did the Photoshop job was shit. My head looks really weird, they took my hat off, and they gave me an entirely new body. It's completely bizarre. And they made Mar much taller than she really is. You can look at the original cover and then what they did to it and spot all the crappy differences. It's awful. It's a real shame. But at a certain level you've got to let this shit go. I designed the original poster and the cover of the DVD myself. Myself and John like to do things ourselves, and I do a bit of design for the Frames. I designed all the Frames album covers. So I put together the DVD cover and the poster originally. And then they took it and CINECAST!ing bastardized it. Instead of walking down a street, they stuck us walking down a big guitar.
